Watergate club, Berlin, Germany
Watergate is one of the most famous clubs in the world. It’s located in the famous Kreuzberg area of ‘techno city’, Berlin.
The new documentary titled Watergate X tells an interesting story about this well-known club. The main participants in the movie actually are the DJs & live acts who played music there & created unforgettable moments & memories for all electronic music lovers.
These are people such as : Pan-Pot, Svan Vath, Dixon, Solomun, Soul Clap, Magda, Heidi and many other popular artists who are part of the fabric of the history of Watergate.
A month ago I was in Berlin, but unfortunately didn’t have the chance to visit this club. I heard from local Berliners that Watergate had become more commercial & touristic over last few years.
But, I notice on Resident Adviser that the line up is always excellent & I love clubs that are a little bit upmarket, so I will definitely have to check it out next time I’m in Berlin.
Oh… and be warned of the long lines for getting into popular clubs in Berlin – even at 5 am there are lines, so be patient & get used to it.
